If you have plenty of time then its good to do. The one good thing is if you walk there you get to see lots of things in the way including the Church of Sao Roque which is very ornate. We also went on the trams but were disappointed as they were very full so you could not see out... More

There is so much to see in the city, that this is the best form of transport to achieve it. Purchase a 24hr pass from a "tabac" or just ask.. this enables you to use all pubic transport trams, funiculars, metro, bus for 24hrs for about 10 euros.. good value for the price...perfect

These beautiful small yellow trams are seen on the network all over Lisbon. There are modern trams running along the river bank, but these old yellow trams are great in the steep hills of the older parts of the city. The only downside is their limited capacity and passengers often have to stand, or face a long wait for the... More

Elevador Bica is a beautyful tour and with fantastic views when you reach the top. Gloriá is just to prevent tiered legs. Tram 28 is a great first day tour, especially in the narrow streets in Alfarma. Beautiful old interior.

Lisbon is so lucky to have such a well thought out public transport network, once you get to grips with the layout, it is so easy to travel about and if you use the vivaviagem card, such good value for money

These old small trams are a great experience for your visit and a good way of getting up and down the hills of Lisbon . We had a long wait for a tram to the castle and then three arrived at once and they were all packed full .

This is a ride which was over almost before it started. It is not like riding a cable car up Post St. in San Francisco, or anything in Switzerland. It went about 200 yards, I believe. It is something to do once in your life to say you did it or to cross off your bucket list, but you could... More

I love the trams and funiculars in Lisbon. They cost about 3,90 euros, each way, but if you buy a 6,00 euro day pass from the machine in the metro station, you can ride any tram, funicular, elevator or Carris bus or metro in Lisbon for a 24 hour period. (You can't beat that!) We spent the day just exploring... More

Went on the elevator Gloria it is an old tram which goes up towards Bairro Alto and takes out the stain of an up hill hike .You can use the tram to come back down to Restauradoris square.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
